I have been working at Agilent Technologies as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Agilent's culture and values are constantly positive and always striving to move the company forward. They have a very strong marketing/finance department and the company as a whole constantly pushes for cutting edge technology.

The work/life balance as an engineer is perfect. Work hours are fairly flexible as long as your work is completed, and the deadlines are set reasonably. If travel is necessary it is covered with normal fashion, but travel isn't required very often.

During the summer there are frequent and fun internship events at the Santa Clara site.

Cons

Unfortunately the career opportunities for this company did not line up with my desires after graduation. The company doesn't seem to be growing at an extremely high rate, other than some hiring in Santa Rosa. Interns don't accrue time off.

    Vast intellectually challenging opportunities
    High flexibility in deciding works schedule.

    Advice to Management

    Bring back human resources in house. I probably am not alone in hating outsourced HR.
